Hi,
I am trying to set up active sync with our exchange 2007 server. I am setting this up with no ISA. So far I Ive followed the steps that was in the exchange server for setting up the, SSL for your CAS, and configure Exchange Activesync. I do not have OWA set up. I am looking to be able to get our exchange mail on our mobile phones which are I-phones/pc mobile phones.
I have tested the ports and it all passed up until the ssl verification. I am trying to create this with a self-sign certificate.  I know your suppose to download the ssl, which I tried the ssl had some errors in it.
I am testing this thru IE by going to the folder of the CAS on the server.   ex. https://192.168.1.1/mobile/
The errors are:
      Extensions only:
            -Subject Alternative Name:  DNS Name=servername
                                                                DNS Name=servername.servername2.local

            - Enhanced Key Usage:  Server Authentication (1.3.6.1.1.5.7.4.1)

      Critical Extensions Only:

            -Key Usage: Digital Signature, Key Encipherment (a0)

            - Basic Constraints:  Subject Type=End Entity
                                                                 Path Length Constraint=None

Ive read some articles and I understand that I will have to manually install the ssl cert onto the phones, but Im stuck on the ssl part and not really sure what to do from there. Any help will be great. Am I able to test it the way I am doing it or should I DL an emulator for windows mobile and test it that way?

First - Exchange ActiveSync on Exchange 2007 is not supported with a self signed certificate. You will need to change it for a commercial certificate to get things to work correctly. It will also save you a lot of headaches in getting the certificates on to the devices.

I have instructions on how to install a commercial certificate on my blog here:

As for testing it, Microsoft have a test site if the server is exposed to the internet.

Otherwise it is the emulator.

Oh and I noticed this in your question:

"https://192.168.1.1/mobile/"

Does that mean you have set a URL of something/mobile in the ActiveSync properties within Exchange 2007?
If so then you will need to correct it. The URL must end in Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync. For example https://host.example.com/Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync
